our first day in our new home

It has been a long day!!  Yesterday we finished loading the truck, we cleaned the house (think SAMI for those USMA people), then we trekked down to sleep and get ready to get our stuff off the truck! 

You do not realize how much stuff you have until it is all in boxes and you have to find a home for it all!  I have no idea where it will all go – but I know I cam going to purge as I unpack!!

So AGs room is all put together, mostly unpacked, and she is in heaven!!  She loves her pink room and loves having her girly toys in there with her.  Living with her brother has not been delightful to her this past year!

The boys have their beds together, but that is about it.  We have lots of rearranging with dressers and closet stuff and putting away.  The toys are going in their room, which is a first for us!

Here is our new home (built in 1960 – so it is pretty old)
